Better than my dad's '03 Focus! Driving position first class.

Performance

For a 1.4 this is good! Keeps up with my dad's 1.6 Focus.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Quite good, but my one has niggling faults caused by incompetent previous owner...

Quite good. It looks cool, but it isn't as good as the Mk3 Astra.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Disappointing. Seats are firm and headrests don't adjust!

Driver's door has developed a crack in the weld just about the lock. Probably previous owner.

It had a blown gasket before I got it and I can still smell the oil...

Doesn't like first... annoying at traffic lights.

Other
Seatbelt pre-tensioners. Mine is now on its 2nd.
